See You at MILCOM

See you at MILCOM

I will be presenting my work on MIMO communications at this year’s MILCOM in Los Angeles. The conference is October 29-31 2018. This year is the 37th year for the conference as it continues to be the premier conference for military communications.

About MILCOM [from]

At MILCOM, global military communications professionals face command, control, communications, computing, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) challenges head on. They look at them from every angle and discuss them from end to end – research and development through future needs. The conference allows industry the opportunity to hear and understand the requirements, pace of change and state of play in a variety of C4ISR markets serving the military, federal agencies and multinational entities.

My Paper

My paper at MILCOM is titled “Utilization of Inter-Block Interference in MIMO-OFDM Communication Systems” if you are going to be at the conference the talk in the Session Reliable Communication from Mon, October 29, 2018 09:40 until 12:00 (5th paper) in New York Room. Below is the abstract for the paper that I will be presenting.


As Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) – Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) communication systems grow to accommodate more users the effect of Inter Block Interference (IBI) degrades performance exponentially. To utilize this performance reduction we looked at a topology that induces IBI. The IBI is used as a mechanism to reduce the quality of an eavesdropper’s received signal. This paper derives the effect of IBI on MIMO-OFDM systems as a function of the distribution of the users’ locations. Furthermore, simulations show expected performance under time-domain and frequency-domain channel estimation techniques which are compared to the theoretical performance and known CSI. Results show that a frequency-domain channel estimator reduces link quality while using a time-domain channel estimator can improve an eavesdropper’s chance of exploitation.
